Great for a quick hike. Great view over Bow Lake if you go about a half mile past the summit. First half mile is pretty steep but easy after that. The part past the summit to the overlook has several sharp turns so it's easy to get off trail if you're not paying attention to the blazes.

Fun little hike. The parking lot is right on Route 126 and can be easy to miss. The trail is well marked and easy to follow with a pretty steep part at the beginning before leveling off. The summit doesn't have a view but there are a couple of overlooks on the way up (one on a quick sidetrail) and a great view of Bow Lake if you continue past the summit.
